Össur India in partnership with ISIC welcomed Dr. Keisuke Ishii to lead a seminar and case study presentation on the application of HALO for traumatic cervical fractures on March 23rd, 2015.

The seminar was attended by 25 doctors (neuro and spine) and Dr. Ishii was welcomed by the head of orthopedics, Dr. H.S. Chabbra,. In addition, Shoko Nireki, sales manager from Össur Japan was also present and she assisted with translation as well as her own clinical experiences with HALOs.

This event was one of the first clinical seminars hosted by Össur India since starting direct operations in September 2014 and it was very successful as a clinical-cultural exchange event between surgeons in India and Japan. There were lots of discussions regarding differences in patient cases, injury types and approaches to reimbursement in the two countries.

Overall this was a very successful event for Össur India both in brand-building as well as peer to peer education among physicians.
